1 Peter 1:7; 4:12
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
Today's message reminds us that in this life we will face trails and they are to produce true faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
If the question was raised, are the trials we face necessary? Yes they are in that they are purging us of our sins that can and will cause believers to carry unnecessary weight while running this Christian race.
It is noteworthy to say, unless we have been tried in the fire of life, then we as believers lack the knowledge of how strong our faith is neither is there a testimony of how the Lord brought you through the fire.
The fiery trials of life give believers additional reasons to praise God for His goodness, grace and mercy. This is because it is the Lord who brings us through these trials, and with each trial if purifying us so that at the end of life's journey we will come forth as pure gold.
The fiery trials of life are looked upon as the hand of God shaping us into that smooth pottery of clay. He is the potter and we are the clay.
